Jess learned a hard lesson the other day. He was unemployed all throughout the month of May, and of course, things piled up.
Lots and lots of things, like bills, like three vehicles at the light where he was stopped. His bumper got rammed by the car behind him, who was hit by a gal going about 40. Jess saw her coming in his rear view mirror, so he braced himself and was uninjured instead of having a whiplash type injury, but in the insuing investigation, he was ticketed anyway. Not for any fault in the accident, as both he and the car behind him were at a complete stop, patiently waiting for the light to change, but for not carrying insurance, which is required in Iowa.
The ticket ran to the tune of $900. Say what? If someone can't afford their insurance premium, how on earth will they pay the FINE? Looks like his income tax check has just found a home.
He admitted that since he was 23 and had never had an accident, he decided he never would, and deliberately did not renew it, paying other bills instead.
Rest assured, if you tempt fate like that, she will willingly oblige you...
